    She's always fantastic, but frequently plays dark. It'll be interesting to see her go a bit more light. Unless she doesn't...

    She is my favorite, favorite actress!! I have loved her since Lady Jane. Fabulous news! Thanks for posting! This will be interesting to see how she approaches this roll.
    Though she has played "dark" mostly as of late, her parts in the Merchant Ivory films were not, I'm glad to see her play a different type of roll for a change.

    Love her! :goodvibes

    She and Kenneth Branagh worked together on screen most recently in the Harry Potter movies.

    Having just recently watched these, I don't think so. Brannagh comes and goes in #2 and Bonham Carter doesn't show up until #3.

    I love her, but I agree she is usually in dark, villainous roles. So it will be fun to see her playing on the side of "good"

    surprised Johnny Depp is not in it too, seems like they are always doing movies together.

    maybe portraying her as the evil step mother would be more her type but again maybe after playing belatrix in harry potter she feels shes already palyed a role similar and wants to move to somthing different.

    personally i cant picture her being a "good fairy godmother" given her attraction to dark things like Tim Burton and frequently working with Depp.

    she is a good portrayer of the outkast but maybe she is wanting to not get typecast and show us somthing else she feels she can do and do well.

    put it this way, never found a movie with her i havnt liked!

    I like and respect her acting immensely, but her first name. . .:rolleyes2. Now every person in the world thinks Helena is pronounced only like the the state capital of Montana.

    (Yes, there are Helena's in my family, and they're not Helen-uh's: they're Heh-leen-a's. They DO live in South Louisiana, after all.)

    Personally I can't stand her, but I love Kenneth so it can't be all bad.
